Castlefield Food Festival

A weekend showcase of some of Manchester’s finest chefs, restaurants and street food traders.

12 May - 15 May 2016

After its unbelievable inaugural success in 2015, the Castlefield Food Festival returns to Manchester in May for a four day run, offering more tastes, treats and entertainment than before.

Already a key date on the food and drink calendar, the 2016 Festival is growing to include more stalls, more produce and more events and organisers are looking to build on the impressive 15,000 visitors who sampled the Festival's delights last year.

Visitor favourites are back - like the Demonstration Kitchen, where the best and brightest of our region's chefs show off their skills, and the Live Music Stage, providing music and entertainment throughout the weekend.

The newest addition to the packed schedule is the first ever Night Market. Catering to the thousands of professionals living and working in Castlefield and the surrounding city, the Night Market will bring the weekend Festival buzz and convenience to the after-work crowd.
